PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Government will discuss the Sarawak government on the state's policy to quarantine those coming in from peninsula Malaysia, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The Senior Minister said that SOPs for Sarawak and Sabah are determined by the respective state governments.
“We haven’t had any discussions with Sarawak on this issue but will bring up the matter, ” he said on Wednesday (Dec 9).
Ismail Sabri said he was aware of the issue faced by Sarawakians who want to return for Christmas holidays but have to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
Ismail Sabri said that Sabah had relaxed some of its SOPs, including allowing individuals into the state for social purposes.
Individuals entering Sabah via air, sea and land must undergo the RT-PCR or RT-Ag Covid-19 swab test three days before travel and only individuals who do not have symptoms with negative results are allowed in.
